I'd hope that given the active efforts that Samsung are making to push
things into mainline anything that isn't in mainline will be there
sooner rather than later.  Given that it seems better to avoid things
like this which will create issues after merge to mainline without
consideration for how things are supposed to work after the merge.

Something with this much of a system wide effect really isn't a good
idea - the wider the effect of what you're doing the worse the effect of
any breakage that is introduced.
